Dell EMC logoDell EMC World 2016 is less than a month away. The conference returns to Austin, TX at The Austin Convention Center October 18-20. Dell EMC World is where experts, thought leaders, and IT professionals gather to preview the newest Dell product offerings and receive training on the latest innovations in virtualization, cloud, and more.

After completing its acquisition of EMC on September 7th, we predicted what the merger would mean for Dell and the conference. For starters, it means a new name. In addition to going forward as Dell Technologies, Dell World is now Dell EMC World. With so many changes in the works, there’s no wonder this year’s conference theme is “Let The Transformation Begin”. Here’s what you can expect at Dell EMC World 2016.
